Sapa town’s like a stretch of road with shops and hotels located at both sides - Bamboo Sapa Hotel is right at the end, almost directly opposite The Mhong Sisters’ bar. It’s not especially close to restaurants and bars but it’s still within walking distance.
The hotel and staff:
To be honest, where general appearances are concerned, it looks ‘aged’ as compared to other options available throughout Sapa town. It doesn’t have an elevator but the staff would be rushing to your side to help with your luggage anyway. The staff is friendly enough, managed to crack a smile while unlocking the front doors for us (it was way past midnight).
We stayed 1night, the rooms are spacious, there’s no air conditioning but there’s a heater if I’m not mistaken. The rooms, bed sheets, bathrooms looked clean but alas, spotting a scuttling cockroach in the room on 2 separate occasions shattered that illusion. Water heater and hairdryer are available, particularly important as nothing seem to be able to dry completely around this highland.
Noise control is terrible though, the walls are not sound-proof and I was woken up at the crack of dawn by the sounds of chattering voices, whirring of the hairdryer and footsteps against the stairs.
Nevertheless, the view from the balcony was breathtaking.
Breakfast is acceptable. They have freshly prepared omelets and soup noodles. Go early if you want to avoid the crowd (0830-0900 onward) which mostly consists of families and loud children.
